CTV’s flagship investigative program, W5, visited the Rideau Institute recently as part of its in-depth examination of Canada’s submarine program.
Canadian news icon Lloyd Robertson led the team that interviewed Steven Staples about the submarine program. The Rideau Institute has advocated retiring the expensive and poor-performing submarine program.
During a break, Lloyd Robertson spent time getting to know the institute’s student interns from St. Paul University, the University of Ottawa, and Carleton University. The students enjoyed talking to Mr. Robertson about their studies and career aspirations.
The W5 program aired on November 12, and included interviews with many figures from the Navy, government, and defence policy community.
You can read more about the W5 program “Deep Sea Duds” on the CTV website, and watch part one and part two online. W5 is in its 46th season of investigative journalism; the award-winning series is hosted by Lloyd Robertson.
